Are you considering working from home but you don’t know where to find home-based job opportunities?

Online teaching has been one of the most popular home-based jobs among Filipinos. Since most of us, Filipinos, are good in speaking English, we have higher chances of getting hired as an Online Teacher.

Some of the popular Online Teaching platforms or companies that offer home-based jobs for Filipinos are Rarejob, 51Talk and Bizmates.

One of my friends is an online teacher at Bizmates and in this article, I’ll share with you more about this company and how you can apply as an Online Teacher.

Since the main job responsibility is to teach business English to Japanese professionals, the applicants are expected to have excellent written and verbal English communication skills with at least 3 years of teaching or training experience.

Take note though that even if they prefer applicants with teaching experience, you can still apply even if you don’t have an experience. According to them, passion and a strong work ethic are far more important than teaching experience.
